My son and I have a relationship that isn’t like other people’s relationships. I’m not going to break it down to soo..just take it on faith. We are different than other mom/son variety packs…I say that to kinda explain this next bit.
See, every year I send my kid a hoodie/sweatshirt or t-shirt, for his birthday. It’s our tradition. Since he’s an artist, it’s usually another artists work off an artist site like Threadless or RedBubble, or Society 6. His taste and mine are NOT the same, so I can’t really select one FOR him and besides, that would totally miss the point of “our” whole thing.
so…every year we do this..and every year it takes AT LEAST a month to get him to pick a damned hoodie already! My son isn’t against my spending money, he’s just ALWAYS DOING OTHER THINGS. Lil twerp! Busy kid, frustrated mom.
So, I submit my newest “actual” text to my son…
and now, we wait. A reaction is coming…this is how we communicate.
